The route 90 began on the 19th August 1989 and was operated by a company called bus-lines. I think the changeover point was near Hayes. The route Monday to Friday evenings, Saturday and Sunday ran from Kew Gardens to Yeading and Monday to Friday except evenings ran a little extra from Yeading to Northolt Station (via Richmond, Twickenham, Hanworth, Feltham, Hatton Cross, Harlington and Hayes). The current PVR was Monday to Friday 11DD, Saturday 9DD and Sunday 5DD.
On the 9th November 1991 the 90 was withdrawn between Richmond and Kew Gardens which was replaced by route 391
. The route was currently run between Richmond and Northolt Station. The PVR stayed the same.
On the 11th June 1994 the 90 was diverted in the Hayes area to serve people who wanted access to Sainsbury’s.
By the 23rd August 1997 the route was transferred to Metroline and was operated from North Wembley Garage (NW). They decided to change the route around a little as the route was withdrawn between Richmond and Feltham, this section was replaced by the new route 490
. The route was also diverted to Feltham Browells Lane and Leisure West. The route was also converted to single deck operation, the current PVR was Monday to Friday 9DL, Saturday 8DL and Sunday 6DL.
On the 29th April 2006 the route was transferred to Perivale Garage, the current PVR is Monday to Saturday 17DLD and Sunday 9DLD. On the 1st September 2007 Metroline had won the contract for another 5 years with brand new vehicles until 2012. The current PVR was 17MM Monday to Saturday and Sunday 8MM. The average journey time is between 40 and 70 minutes. The frequency Monday to Saturday is every 10 minutes, Sunday and evenings run every 20 minutes.
